Lifelong local resident Bethany M. Koelsch, 35, of Longview entered the arms of her Lord Oct. 29, 2018, at Sunnyside Medical Center in Clackamas, Ore.

She was born Oct. 6, 1983, in Longview. She graduated from Mark Morris High School and the Art Institute of Portland.

Beth met Ian G. Koelsch in the Calvary Community Church Youth Group. They were married June 28, 2003. She was his loving wife for 15 years and a wonderful mother to their three children, Tinley, Beckham and Leighton.

She enjoyed sewing, camping and was a former member of the Rainy City Roller Girls roller derby team. Beth had an incredible faith in Jesus. She was unbelievably positive and optimistic, and always wore a radiant smile which brightened the lives of those around her.

In addition to her much-loved husband and children, Beth is survived by her mother, Jennifer (Washburn) Green; her father, Michael Kruger; two siblings, Jon Kruger and Brittany Thomas (Joel); three nieces, Olivia, Lucy, and Nora Thomas; a nephew, Jack Thomas; and her parents-in-law, Ellen and Mark Koelsch.

Beth was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Avarie Koelsch; and her maternal and paternal grandparents.

A service was held Monday at Renewal City Church.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Beth Koelsch Children Memorial Fund at Fibre Federal Credit Union to benefit her children.
